A little funk in your life is never a bad thing and while it’s usually left to an older generation of artists to give us some funk, Jericho are breaking with tradition and bringing funk back to an audience who think of funk as a mood rather than a genre of music. Let me just say funk one more time, because I like the funking sound of it!
Jericho’s debut EP entitled Tantra, landed on my desk just last week and I had no expectations or idea’s of how it was going to sound. Saying that, the minute I uploaded it to my laptop and gave it a listen, I was surprised by the music. The only way I can describe it is Prince mixed with Michael Jackson but performed by pasty Irish men & women. The songs themselves are nostalgic but without ripping off any other artist. And all this from a young band based in Cork.
